James J. Hustace
James J. Hustace has been art collector since 1970 and a respected art resource since 1993. He was asked to fulfill a vital role for the appraisal of fine Hawaiian artwork for insurance, donations, estate planning, purchases, and corporate & private collections. For many years (1973-2008) he was a nationally certified real property appraiser and assistant to Edward C. Hustace, MAI and CPM with major assignments of Hawaii’s airports; harbors, industrial, agricultural and ranch lands, commercial, and residential properties; highways; and condemnations.
He is a State of Hawai’i registered fine art appraiser and Certified Appraiser of International Fine Art Appraisers. IFAA is the most respected fine art appraisal organization. Since there was a major need for appraisal of international art, he has taken on numerous assignments beyond the art of Hawai’i. He is compliant with the National Code of Ethics. Members of the International Fine Art Appraisers are expected to establish and maintain the highest level of ethical conduct, professional standards, and methodological uses of appraisal valuation estimates based upon their knowledge and extensive "hands on" experience.
